Beech Flower Remedy – Tolerance
Beech is one of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies. Discovered by Dr Edward Bach in the 1930’s the Bach Flower Remedies are simple, natural and gentle acting remedies which help you to balance your thought and emotions. They have an understandably enduring appeal and are still the most popular and well known flower essences around the world today.
The Beech remedy, made from the flowers of the beautiful Beech tree, helps us when we feel intolerant or critical of ourselves or others.
Beech helps those who need to establish a more loving, lenient and flexible relationship with themselves and with those around them
What Does Beech Do?
Beech helps those who need to establish a more loving, lenient and flexible relationship with themselves and with those around them. Criticism, judgement and intolerance are very common personality traits in today’s world where they are often seen as acceptable ways of instilling discipline in children as they grow up. However when these traits are not balanced with enough love the result is an individual who is constantly critical, intolerant and judgemental of themselves and others.
Being easily irritated by others habits, having a very fixed outlook on life or so sensitive to criticism from others that it is difficult to benefit from life’s lessons, are all indications of the need for this remedy.
Dr Bach’s description of Beech
"For those who feel the need to see more good and beauty in all that surrounds them. And, although much appears to be wrong, to have the ability to see the good growing within. So as to be able to be more tolerant, lenient and understanding of the different way each individual and all things are working to their own final perfection."
From The Twelve Healers & Other Remedies – By Dr Edward Bach ( 1936 edition )

Dr. Bach’s Seven Main Groups
Dr. Bach divided his 38 Bach Flower Remedies into seven different personality groups; each group representing the differing ways a particular thought pattern or emotion could be seen and experienced in the personality.
Beech is in Dr Bach’s – Overcare for Welfare of Others Group
The five remedies in this group each express the very different ways in which we can behave when we feel overly responsible for the welfare of others or possibly the planet. Beech, Chicory, Rock Water, Vervain, Vine
The Beech Tree
The Latin Name for Beech is: Fagus Sylvatica
Mature Beech trees are a sight to behold and are majestic and beautiful beings. The Beech tree is native to the U.K. and is sometimes known as the queen of British trees.
A mature Beech tree can grow to as tall as 40m in height, often with a large crown and wide spreading branches. Beeches are monoecious, bearing both male and female flowers on the same plant.
"To wander beneath the leafy canopy, its cathedral-like branches spreading upwards, is an awe-inspiring experience." Woodland Trust
Making the Beech Remedy
Beech was one of the second nineteen remedies that Dr. Bach discovered. He first made it in 1935 around Sotwell in Oxfordshire and prepared it using the boiling method of potentisation. The discovery of these second nineteen remedies was done over a six month period and was different to the first nineteen in that for a few days before he discovered the remedy he suffered actuely from the state of mind for which that particular remedy was required.
How To Use Beech
Our Bach Flower Remedies are stock level Essences which can be diluted into a treatment bottle as suggested by Dr Bach or used directly from stock if preferred. A treatment bottle can contain one single essence or a combination of up to eight different essences.
Making a Treatment Combination
Making a Bach Flower Remedy combination is simple and easy: put 2 drops from each of the Remedies you require (4 drops of Revival Remedy) into a clean glass dropper bottle containing up to 30ml of spring water (adding a teaspoon full of brandy or cider vinegar as a preservative if you wish). Alternatively you can put 4 drops of each remedy required (8 drops of Revival Remedy) into a glass of water. You can combine up to 8 of the Bach Remedies.
How to Use Your Combination
Using Your Combination: For a normal adult dosage take 4 drops on the tongue (or a sip from your glass of water) 8 x a day, or every 30 – 60 minutes for acute states. Using Directly From Stock: Take 2 drops on the tongue as above. Preferably take 10 minutes away from food and drink. We’d normally suggest using for two – four weeks before reviewing how you feel.
